The iPad Pro tablets are already the best on the market, and Apple updated this series this spring, with new cameras and a newer chipset. This fall, however, new iPad Pro tablets are expected, according to rumors, which will debut the first 5G modems on Apple tablets. Pro iPad tablet models were already among the most expensive on the market, but the switch to a new processor and new generation connectivity will push the price even higher.
The new iPad Pro 5G could be significantly more expensive than current models
The new information comes from the Chinese website MyDrivers, which claims that Apple plans to launch sometime between September and October the new generation iPad Pro 5G, with superior performance and a starting price of over $ 1,000. They will keep the general design of the iPad Pro models from the last few years, with 11 and 12.9 ”screens, respectively. However, they will come with a new version of Apple chipset, based on the new 5nm architecture.
This is the Apple A14X model, which will be a significantly more powerful version of the Apple A14 chipset that is expected on the iPhone 12 series. This range of tablets will then be followed by a new generation of iPad Air, also equipped with 5G technology. However, it will only be launched in the spring, according to information currently available.
However, it seems that apart from the processor and modem, the new tablet models will not undergo too many upgrades. It is rumored that they could be equipped with mini-LED screens, instead of LCDs at 120 Hz, another aspect that could significantly increase the production price.
